Motion Industries, a leading distributor of maintenance, repair, and operation replacement parts and a wholly owned subsidiary of Genuine Parts Company, has opened the doors for business at its new distribution center (DC) at 4401 D Street NW, Suite A, in Auburn, Wash. The facility is managed by Ryan Mort.
The DC’s strategically chosen location features easy connections to Interstates 5, 405, and 90. It is also conveniently situated only 15 minutes from Sea-Tac Intl. Airport. Covering just over 62,000 ft2 the DC stocks and ships a broad range of industrial parts and supplies including bearings, power transmission products, fluid power components, electrical parts, safety supplies, and more. The new distribution center serves 24 area Motion Industries branch locations daily, as well as the entire Motion Industries North American footprint (550+ locations) as needed.
“This is something that the customers have asked for so we’re happy and excited that we’re able to fulfill their request,” said Joe Limbaugh, Motion Industries V.P. of operations, distribution, and properties. Limbaugh added that additional enhancements will come down the road and looks forward to fulfilling plans for growth.
“Opening the new DC’s doors also means opportunity for customers in the region to receive their orders even quicker. We’re looking forward to delivering a positive business impact on industry in the Pacific Northwest,” added Motion Industries president and CEO Tim Breen.
The new facility complements Motion’s primary North American distribution centers in Birmingham, Tracy, Calif., Chicago, Baltimore, Dallas, Edmonton, Alberta, and Lachine, Quebec. For more information, visit www.motionindustries.com.
